The X5-TX, from Innovative Integration, is an XMC I/O module with four channels of 500 MSPS, 16-bit DAC outputs driven by a Virtex5 FPGA computing core, DRAM and SRAM memory, and eight lane PCI Express host interface. The DAC devices support up-conversion and interpolation plus a mode providing two channels at a true 1 GSPS, 16-bit rate without interpolation. A Xilinx Virtex5 SX95T or LX155T with 512 MB DDR2 DRAM and 4MB QDR-II memory provides a very high performance DSP core for demanding applications such RADAR and direct RF digitizing. The tight integration of analog IO, memory and fast host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at rates exceeding 300 GMAC/s.

X5 cards can be fully customized using VHDL and MATLAB using the FrameWork Logic toolset. The supplied MATLAB BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical, block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator. IP logic cores are available for SDR applications that provide multi-channel modulations for PSK and FSK systems.
